I'm making progress on the summer-fun list. I am up to trying 4 beers (let's be honest. This is an easy one--out at dinner, order a new one, another notch on the list), and I had a delightful morning of yard-saling on Saturday. And speaking of yard-saling, anyone planning one soon please heed this simple note--use. good. and clear. signage. Oh my stars! If I can easily find your yard-sale I arrive in a better mood, which usually makes me more inclined to look, which may lead to a purchase. Just saying. The friend who I was yard-saling with hit GOLD--vintage handbags, jewelry, napkins, dishes...I was SO excited for her! Oh yeah. Going shopping with me is like going shopping with a cheer-leader. I'm probably going to get pretty thrilled about your purchases with you.
Look at my finds so far this season!
Solid wood bar stools: $10/set
Dresser for the guest room!
Bed for the guest room! (My guest room is going to have a bed frame and I still will not, ha ha!)
Cut glass bowl
And I've found a few picture frames and a necklace. I'm exercising incredible self-control this season and not just getting it if I really like it and it's at a good price. It has to have a home and purpose! For instance, one yardsale had a ton of vintage cloth napkins at LOW prices. I love cloth napkins. But I walked away because I knew that they were just not something I needed. Clearly, I'm still proud of myself. :)
Bestie has started a new job in NYC, and we have taken to sending each other a photo of our outfit each morning. It's definitely a fun way to start each morning with, especially since she lives a few too many states away and I don't get to see her nearly often enough. I'm having a ton of fun starting the day this way! Here are my looks from the past week--
- I did not wear trousers once last week. I consider that a pretty good week. :)
- So, the pink skirt. I was trying to smooth it out and the steamer wasn't cutting it. I pulled out the iron and was working on it and the next thing I know the skirt is melting to the iron. Boo! Fortunately the pattern hides the gaping holes I made.
- I think I have to get rid of the blue dress with green cardigan. Good problem, it's too big. But, it's a jersey knit dress that is one of my favorites. Whine whine, into the swap party pile you'll go.
- I realized on Friday that I needed to vary putting my hand on my hip. Less back-ache pose for me!
